    A deeply fruity and powerful red blend, yet nuanced and complex. Aromas of cherries, blueberries, and blackberries. Fruit quality is slightly jammy, but overall mostly ripe in expression. Bouquet of vanilla, espresso, and mocha. Soft tannins accented by a noted elevated acidity on the finish. A tinge of dried herbs, most noted being thyme and marjoram. Overall, this robust wine appeals to those who are fans of red blends like The Prisoner. Great option for summer barbeques; also fun pairing with olive tapenade

    The Bootleg Napa Valley Red Wine blend is luscious and full, brimming with jammy blueberry, strawberry, cassis and plum. subtle floral aromatics of violet waft over the fruit, and dusty spice aromas of star anise, cinnamon and white and black pepper round out the finish. Merlot from Napa's famous Stagecoach vineyard is a major component in the blend, which adds a deliciously supple and velvety tannin, and provides depth and structure.

    The first time I tasted the 2013 Bootleg Red I was taken back numerous years to the first time I tasted Prisoner. They reminded me so much of each other it was a bit surprising. There was the same intensity, the same largesse, the same power to the wines that I was really taken aback. Then my brain started doing the “math” and I realized just what a killer wine the Bootleg Red was. I mean Prisoner is almost $50 now, which is difficult for most people to spend on a regular basis, and this incredibly similar wine is $32.99, much more affordable for the masses. So if you like big, brooding, oaky and darkly fruited red blends this new kid on the block is something you surely will want to chase down.
